In honor of Manchester City celebrating the start of their 125th anniversary season the team has revealed a special kit to commemorate the special occasion. The kit has been inspired by the Club’s history, with different design features being voted on by the Club’s fans. The City fans were invited to vote exclusively on the details, such as: which crest the kit would get and its positioning, as well as if it would be in full color or monochrome. The fans also voted on which Manchester symbol would feature on the back and the commemorative wording on the inside tape of the neck.
The jersey is mostly light blue with a white trim, as the crest features gold lettering designating the Club’s 125 years. The jersey will not feature any sponsorship logos to keep it a very classic design. The commemorative wording of 'Manchester City since 1894', featured above a copy of the Club’s founding document, signed by Joshua Parlby. A limited edition run of 1,894 individually numbered authentic jerseys will be produced to reflect the Club’s founding year.
The kit will be worn vs Liverpool in the Community Shield at Wembley, on Sunday 4 August.
